This yearâ€™s drought continues to take its toll on Central Texas and it has left most of Austinâ€™s homeowners with weather-weary front yards and landscapes full of dying grass and empty flowerbeds. Thankfully, the DIY Networkâ€™s series, â€œDesperate LandscapesÂ â€ is heading to the rescue.
The hit home improvement series is heading to Austin to rehabilitate and redesign a â€œdesperate landscapeâ€ for a local homeowner. In just eight hours,Â Jason CameronÂ â€”DIY Networkâ€™s licensed contractor and host of â€œDesperate Landscapesâ€â€”along with an whole crew of dedicated workers, will transform a lucky Austiniteâ€™s front yard from an eyesore into the pride of the neighborhoodâ€”all completely free of cost.
And Executive Producer Jay Shatz says theyâ€™re looking for more than just a burned out front lawn. â€œOur team wants to tackle huge construction projects and really transform the front of the house,â€ Shatz says.
Along with a yard that needs tending, producers want to capture Austinâ€™s unique spirit and are hoping to cast homeowners with uniquely fun or funky personalities who would be comfortable in front of the camera.
If you think you fit the bill or know someone who does, send a picture or Youtube video of the homeowner and landscape in question toÂ casting@Jaytv.net. For more information visitÂ JayTV.net. Deadline is December 9th.
